Many thanks for correcting me. Chicken indeed have feet with claws but no paws.

Chevrolet No va - doesn't sound like sort of "Chevy doesn't go,"  it is: 
"Chevy doesn't go!" Chevy owners around here are 35 or younger. Anyone 
older than that would never buy one. Yes, the intended meaning was 
"nova", "nueva", "new" but Latin is a dying language which many 
potential Latin American customers did not understand. Anyway I find all 
this off topic put amusing.
